Family is truth

by Erin Yamabe | March 8, 2016


Hello and Happy Monday, Ruby Rock-It Fans!  Erin here with you today, with a layout of my older daughter in our cousin's wedding.  We are featuring our beautiful New Winter range, Faded Empire this month.  The patterns and vintage feel in the color palette were perfect for this photo!

Faded Empire has a nostalgic and vintage feel, and we have a tradition in our family, that goes back 4 generations.  Our oldest is a flower girl for my cousin, and my cousin was my flower girl, and it is such a beautiful thing capturing these family moments.

The foundation for the layout is from our IWood range.  These double sided wood inspired papers are alot of fun to create with!

Then, I layered two of our Faded Empire papers onto the IWood paper.  

Our Wood Veneers and droplets are some of my go-to embellishments.  I wanted to match our beautiful Alpha chipboard gold letters, so I inked up the wood veneer shapes.

The die cut embellishment pack is filled with lovely vintage elements, and some have silver accents, and others, gold.  This golden key is perfect!

I fussy cut some of our arrows from our Dancette gold papers, to use as some embellishments on the top of the layout.  Thought it was a sweet pairing next to some of our wood veneers and droplets!

IWood papers

Faded Empire papers

Faded Empire droplets

A Fresh New Look

by Alicia Barry | February 27, 2016
A Fresh New Look
Today I have some fresh new cards to share with you using the brand new sewing inspired Bolt paper collection and embellishments. 
For my first card, I used some fussy cut floral pieces and some offcuts from other papers, including some corrugated cardstock and some pretty little droplets. The imprinted pattern in the cardstock was enough of a pattern to keep the rest of the design simple. 

 Next up I layered some patterned paper with more corrugated board, and some die cuts for a simple but pretty card. 

Finally I layered patterned paper and corrugated card for a bold background. Fussy cut elements and die cuts were combined to create a focus cluster. Notice how I used a stitch stamp under the sentiment. I really like the subtle touch of gold on the die cut butterfly.

Sweet Greetings

by Erin Yamabe | February 25, 2016


"Sweet Greetings" or simple Hello cards are some of my very favorite to create and send!  As handmade and hand written cards are becoming outdated, there's nothing sweeter I think to send to a dear friend or loved one to brighten their day!

For the first card, I started with some of our gorgeous IWood paper for the foundation.  I've layered on top some of our pink corrugated cardboard paper!  And then, I chose one of our Bolt papers and punched out some circles!

One of my favorite embellishments are our amazing diecuts!  I chose some to layer in, and then added in our darling chipboard buttons and some pretty droplets!

To finish off the card, I added one of our wood veneer pieces and some of our Fundamentals alpha stickers!

For this next card, I started by creating a banner with our lovely Gold corrugated cardboard paper.  And added in a die cutted scalloped box as the centerpiece.

The Fundamentals alpha stickers and droplets completed this sweet greet card!

These supplies are all from our Bolt range: papers, diecuts, droplets, chipboard buttons.

Creative Cards with Bolt

by Teresa Horner | February 20, 2016


There is a brand new paper line out this month for Ruby Rock-it and if you love sewing or have pages to do for all those crafty people in your family then you will love it.  It's called "Bolt" and it's filled with cute little prints that are sewing inspired.  Today it's "Creative Cards"day so i thought i would share some fun cards that i did with the new stitching stamp and the papers.

For my cards i used bits of the paper and lots of the die cuts layered over the top of each one.  These were super fun to make.  I love the ruler paper and the buttons and the colors on each of the prints are so bright and cheerful.  For the Life is good card we also have a new stamp that coordinates with the papers.  There are 3 styles of stitching it so you can stamp the stitching on your cards in any color that you like.  I love that idea and you don't even need a sewing machine !

Here is a closeup of my favorite card i did this time.  We also have water droplets that come in the set with pretty shades of pink, green, gold and i used in pink for the back round and on the bow.  It adds the perfect amount of shine to it.

And for this card i used the printed aqua paper for the base and then layered on simple strips of the ruler paper and the coordinating printed papers.  Then i stamped a stitch at the top and bottom in black ink and finished it with a golden die cut heart and that gorgeous butterfly in aqua.  All it needed with a simple gold cord bow and it's all done and ready to mail out.

And for this one we have some brand new corrugated papers that even come in gold.  How fun is that to use for projects?  I matted a small piece of white over it and then added two of the printed triangle banners up and down and then over that 2 butterflies and then finished it with 3 of the gold chipboard buttons that come in the set.  The clear golden water droplets gave it the perfect bit of shine.  Its' fun to try something way out of the box and you never know what you may end up with.... 

And lastly for this card i used just some bits of the paper to make strips to go across a simple kraft card.  Then i layered one of the spools from the die cuts and added a few chipboard buttons.  Of course it needed some lace so i cut a small piece from the Bella Bling set and glued that on.  Then i found this really cute saying in the wood veneers "Love is the Thread that binds us together" and it worked just perfect.  I love this set since i love to sew myself and can think of a million things to make with it.  I hope you all do too!!  
Enjoy your day and have a really wonderful weekend!  Cheers!

A little gift

by Beckie Dreyer | February 16, 2016
A little gift
Hello!  I have been creating again with the new winter release: Bolt and this time I decided to alter a tin that I had lying around along with some of the 'gifts' found in the Christmas crackers and turn it into a little gift.
I drew around the outside of the tin so I had a background to work on.  I added some of the tape measure which I cut from the paper and also one of the spool tops.  The sizing chart is from the die cut pack and was brilliant as a backing.  I finished off the top with one of the chipboard buttons.

On the inside of the tin I decorated it with some of the papers and added one of the wood veneer plaques to the inside of the lid.
I made a little pin holder using one of the die cuts.  I added a folded piece of paper underneath along with some felt.  I used the little alphabets to add 'pins' to it.
When it was finished I added all the bits and bobs in and it is now ready to be placed in a handbag for little emergencies!!

Sweet Valentine

by Alicia Barry | February 13, 2016
Sweet Valentine
It's almost Valentines day, so I have made a little gift box to celebrate. Rather than start entirely from scratch, I used a store bought box which I then broke down to use as a template. (You could also just re-cover the existing the box if you prefer). 
I have used the brand new Faded Empire line for this project, including some co-ordinating die cuts and wood veneers. I added some texture to the background paper using a stencil and some texture paint along with some crackle paint sections. 
I fussy cut the main floral image, and then layered up from there using Bella! florals, which I spritzed with iridescent spray. This made them sparkle, and also gave me the opportunity to wrinkle them while wet.
